This is part of the crazy, magic life....

Things have gone crazy around here!!!! And I'm sittin' back and enjoying the ride!

A few months ago, things started changing around here. My husband and I read Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover, and that is what it is doing to our family. Making us over. Penny by penny we are setting and reaching goals of getting out of debt.

In the process of reading the book and getting on track together with a budget, things started getting a little hairy at work for my husband. I don't know how long he will be employed, and a lay off is always eminent.

Therefore, we have decided to change the direction of our family. Right now, he is in the process of working on maybe entering the insurance industry with an already established company. And in that process, with things being iffy at work, we prayed about me maybe finding employment.

For me to find employment, a couple of things would have to happen. #1, it would have to be nights, and somewhere safe. #2, it can't keep me from my duties as a mother, #3, it would just have to be the perfect situation! So I set out to read the paper everyday to see what was available. In fact, a month or so ago, I had even told my hubby, wouldn't it be cool if I could find part time nights at a local hotel.

Last Wednesday, there was an ad for a job fair at the local Holiday Inn the next day, as a guest relations clerk, AND they were hiring all shifts! So with a prayer and resume in hand, I headed down and applied. I filled out an application and did a quick 10 minute interview. By 9:30 Friday morning, I had a call back for a 2nd interview!

So this morning, I headed down for my 2nd interview. And it went great! I already have a call back for tomorrow.

So things are crazy here, and I'm loving it!
